Yes. Much more than modern anime.

It's sad how some only prefer new anime.

Honestly. PS2 had bad graphics? You don't remember the atari game system with it's joystick and ONE BUTTON. No fucking joke.
you had to punch, kick, and duck with a combination of directionals and that ONE BUTTON. And the high quality graphics looked like this:


god I feel so damned old.. >.<


I started gaming since 4 when there was SNES... so I've seen a lot of graphic changes. but never seen a game with that pic though lol. unless tetris counts. because I've been playing tetris since I knew how to play games.

(maybe you are old )

Didn't I start by saying I'm a big fan of older anime ? This post perfectly demonstrates what I mean by the "nostalgia factor". A person can't be a anime fan if he thinks some really old anime have "bad graphics"? Their has been significant progress in animation/graphics for many industries. Im an architecture graduate, I can do hand drafted perspectives and computer generated ones. Hand drafted drawings look great, but take 5 times as long to create.If a student tried to do everything by hand, he/she would run out of time and flunk. I can't imagine how long it took to make even one episode of these shows, time consumption has draw backs. Im in the middle of watching Champion Joe as we speak and some animation scenes are vivid,detailed,amazing, but others are recycled and repetitive. Im not trying to be rude hear,but why get offended at the very thought of someone speaking of older anime's limitations?

Old anime art style ticked me off in a way, but I still didn't hate it.
But about old anime, I just love them. Most of the older anime have better plots and themes revolving around it. Not to mention the characters being better than most today. (All though, I still prefer the new anime art style.)

I olny have 7 years on you.. meaning you're about the same age as my younger sister. The game was Karate and those weren't unheard of for graphics on the atari. I grew up poor and had inherited Atari and the Atari home computer (where you had to write in programs for simple text games) from my uncles. I hadn't touch a nintendo till the 90's and playstation came not too long after.

Well, apparently I need to reassess what old is. I wasn't going to include anything after 1990 as being old. If you include stuff more than 10 years old, that includes some of my prime marathoning series, Yu Yu Hakusho and Trigun. I'll also watch the first season of Digimon every so often. Even the first FMA series was over ten years ago now.

Now, for actual old stuff, say from the 70s and 80s, I mostly watch movies, both western animation and anime. The Last Unicorn, Flight of Dragons, and Nausicaa all hold up well enough for me. Most of the series from that time period that I watched as a kid haven't held up as well. Voltron's dub is sort of lolworthy.

For really old, I've caught the black and white Astro Boy from the 60s at the tail end of Adult Swim a few times.

Maybe I should have given a little more information about myself, Im 28 and have been watching anime for around 22 years. Im american, but my dad actually use to own a video store in NYC. He sold all kinds of movies including kungfu/marial arts movies(shaw brothers and stuff like that) and anime. Ive watched a lot Dragonball Z years before it hit US telivision along with plenty other movies. Here is a list of some VHS Ive watched that are still around the house.

My favorites that Ive watched 40+ times each at the least(not joking
___________________________________________________
-Castle Cagliastro
-Nausicaa Valley of the Wind
-Fist of the North Star Movie
-Guyver series
-Dragonball( Ball,Z+GT)
-Devilman
-Street Fighter Movie
-Castle in the Sky

Ones I liked that Ive watched several times
___________________________________________________
-Vampire Hunter D
-Crying Freeman
-Grappler Baki
-Shadow Skill
-Project Ako
-Dominion Tank Police
-Fatal Furry

Shows that I could never get into or weren't allowed to watch(Golgo 13)
___________________________________________________
-Golgo 13 (still never watched the movie,but love the series)
-Appleseed
-Gundam seed
-Mazinger

When I mean old....Mazinger,Devilman series, Champion Joe,Lupin the third series 1 mostly pre 80's stuff.I know the 90's were along time ago, but I don't consider old for this purpose.

Im not bothered by wether it was about me or just being general. My point is one can be a big anime fan and hate older stuff or someone could be the opposite and think new artist are to entrenched in computers(just preferences). The line "so get out of here.....", I felt was very dismissive and didn't add anything to the discussion.

I think watching old anime demonstrates a truer love of the art form, there is just no comparison to hand-drawn cel animation and hand drawn backgrounds in action. The reason there are so many shows being made today is it’s just much easier, and much quicker to churn out dozens of episodes of cgi animation, comparatively cheap. I love watching old anime, especially those with heavy cyber-punk urban themes. Bubblegum Crisis is a joy to watch all eight episodes not just for the music, but amazing hand rendered world especially the way they draw night scenes. I rewatched Dirty Pair:Project Eden this weekend (after some years), and was amazed at how it’s clearly inspired by old James Bond movies.
The psychedelic explosions of color, abstract shapes and stylized female figures moving set to music gives exactly that feeling of nostalgia for 60s action flicks the makers no doubt had- and the movie itself is heavy with outrageous 80s style that I love. I think watching anime from a particular era requires a passion for that era first- otherwise it’s harder to enjoy. Even then it’s going to be hard to understand some of the themes- like the disagreement between the two countries Uldas and Emea in Project Eden was a satire of the US and USSR, which is something a lot of today’s fans can’t relate to and find funny. Still there’s a lot of good animation out there and it’s sad to just refuse to give it a chance because it’s no longer cool.

One of my favorite animes, Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Started in the late 80's ended in I think 2000-ish.
I especially love that character Oberstein. His thing was that where most of the country was run by soldiers who valued honor and pride, Oberstein pretty much ignored both in favor of a more practical and logical approach. Basically he always gave the right answer, but most of the time it's not the one everyone liked.

The Oberstein twist was great.

It's like aww man, I can't hate you anymore Oberstein! You're practically kawaiiee!

Well for one, the series is NOT called Voltron, but Go Lion!

Voltron (just like Macross/Robotech) purposely had the story changed! (Voltron not as bad as robotech)
A lot of gore and story was cut out as the kiddies in America couldn't handle it!

I would suggest watching Go Lion, it is still great! (unless you have an issue with 80's anime art work)

And I know of a pretty decent site you can find Go Lion on too ;)

I know. Voltron is what I watched and it will forever be part of the nostalgia of my childhood. Plus I just like the sound of Voltron better than Go Lion.
And, ironically, I don't think cutting out the gore and being vague about people dying did any good. As a kid I just assumed horrible things happened and people died when they did that.

Have you ever WATCHED Go Lion?

Seriously, you should

Hacked up, sanitized, and story changed for USA audiences, Voltron has its place, but its place is not that of an original.

Go Lion is on the money for a really good story. Other than some minor issues (basically with the narrator) it stands the test of time.

Yes the artwork may not seem the greatest, but in the 80s it was good artwork.

If you have fond memories of Voltron from your youth, Go Lion will replace it with a story that is better than can hold your interest as an adult!

Overall I have to say Go Lion is worth 5 stars, especially for the nostalgia of Voltron, but with a far better story that can be enjoyed and appreciated even more today
